Finger Family - Guitar Chords, Tabs, Sheet Music for Guitar, Printable PDF

“Finger Family” is a popular nursery rhyme, also known as a game for babies. It is a nursery in repetitive form. That is, the text stays same for every turn, with only a small part of a verse change every time. Each finger is assigned for a family member: Daddy Finger as the thumb, Mommy Finger as the index, Brother Finger as the middle. Sister Finger as the ring finger and Baby Finger as the little finger.

Guitar Chords and Tabs in C

“Finger Family” is an easy 3-chord song in a major key. We suggest the key of C major or that of G major, as you will see further down this post. The choice is yours, depending on your skill level and the preferred pitch. To play the tune in C one must be familiarized with the full “barré” technique in order to play the F chord. The remaining C and G chords are essential for beginners.

The melody range is a full octave from C4 to C5 (see on the Music Sheet in C following), which we find a bit compelling for most children’s voice pitch. Nevertheless, you could use a capo to transpose to C#, D, Eb, or E major by placing it respectively on fret I, II, III, or IV.

Guitar Chords and Tabs in G

In case you have any difficulty with the “Barré” technique, or if you would like an easier option for your younger students, we suggest the key of G major, as all three chords G, C and D are essential for beginners.

Accordingly, the melody range extends to the  octave of G4 – G5 which is more suitable for kids singing (see on the Music Sheet in G following). As mentioned before, you could always use a capo to transpose to G#, A, Bb, or B major by placing it respectively on fret I, II, III, or IV.
